Complicated: It really sounds like you have something hormonal going on - i would recommend seeing an endocrinologist to check at least lh, fsh ratio for pcos, thyroid, free testosterone, and dheas. Also, if you are overweight, slowly reach ideal body weight as this will help balance things out. Also, eat organic foods - especially meats and veggies only. Tons or hormones are added to our food supply.
